A Spring Wedding at Willowdale Estate
I had so much fun photographing the wedding of Kara and Duane with the fabulous Liz Wertz at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA. The Willowdale Estate is an incredible venue; I absolutely love it. The exterior of the mansion is made of beautiful old field stones and surrounded by beautiful English gardens. The inside is full of gorgeous wide-plank hardwood, exposed beams, fireplaces…a fabulous place for a wedding. Kara and her bridesmaids arrived to get dressed in the bridal suite (also gorgeous) while Duane and the groomsmen got dressed in an almost equally charming room down the hall. After the ceremony, all of the guests proceeded to the reception tent where Kara danced with her grandfather in the same dress that her grandmother wore to their wedding (how sweet is that!). I also have to say, Kerrianne at Les Fleurs in Andover did a fabulous job with the floral arrangements! I especially loved the baby’s breath bouquets carried by the bridesmaids. The rest of the evening was filled with fun and dancing and a million precious moments between Kara and Duane. This was an amazing wedding; I’m so glad I had the opportunity to be there!
